Sharing of Results on the Pilot Testing of Questionnaires on Cost-Benefit Analysis of Water and Sanitation Systems in the Philippines
An Agreement for Performance of Work (APW) was contracted with Philippine Center for Water and Sanitation to do sharing of results on the pilot testing of questionnaires on cost-benefit analysis (CBA) of water and sanitation systems in the Philippines. Terms of reference are to: 1) design and conduct a workshop on presenting the results of the pilot testing of questionnaires on the cost-benefit analysis of water and sanitation in the Philippines; 2) present the results of the pilot-testing of the questionnaires; 3) gather technical inputs and additional information that could enrich the study; and 4) submit the workshop report, in hard and electronic copies. The Philippine Center for Water and Sanitation (PCWS) was contracted by WHO from 1 July to 31 August 2005 to pilot test the draft sets of questionnaires to determine whether they are user-friendly, can be easily understood and responded with by the interviewees, and that data and information can be easily generated. Specifically, the pilot testing sought to: identify possible gaps in the questionnaires; determine practical issues in the use of questionnaires; and recommend possible changes in the questionnaires. As part of the agreement with WHO, the PCWS organized a workshop on 9 August 2005 at the University of the Philippines to share the initial results of the pilot testing of the questionnaires.
